I Met You In Darkness

I waited there

Arms clutched around scabbed knees

Dirty face streaked with tears

Feet bare and calloused

Wrecked

Wracked

Wretched

Eyes closed tight against the world

Ears shut listening to the void

No whisper

No echo

No

Escape

I HELD MY BREATH

Until my pounding heart demanded

A little longer than that

Calming along all lines

Drawn and redrawn

I TOOK A BREATH

There is no reason

“Why would they do that?”

There is no reason

No logic

Not an answer to the question

I waited for you in the dark

To arrive with answers

Reason

Logic

Oh, but I met you there

I met you in darkness

And all you had to give me

What you gave me there in the darkest night

Like a small spark of hope

Like a brief touch of peace

Like the sun streaming through grey skies

When I met you in darkness

You gave me someone to love

No reason

Not logical

The glowing heart of you

Shining spirit

I still look for you

In the dark
